Self Improvement is Recursive

A recursive process does something, stores the result, and then reapplies the same process using the new result. We see this often in mathematical equations and computer programming.

Any process of continuous self improvement tends to be recursive by nature. We improve ourselves, then continue to work on improving ourselves, but using the new improvements that were developed.

This seems simple and obvious but there is some magic in it just like the growth in compound interest. This is a foundational element in high performance. By constantly building ourselves up layer by layer, we can reach new levels. We can find new ways to self improve. Our rate of growth can increase.

This principle is specially profound in the area of automating intelligence.
